It’s not hard to do the research. It’s all over the media. Our Government is corrupt, and if you don’t believe me, read the book, “The Emperor Wears No Clothes” by Jack Herer, which explains the the extent our leaders (LOL)went to demonize the hemp plant.
The Clinton Administration has know about cannabis/ hemp for decades. They too like Obamas have covered up the truth.

Hemp and Marijuana
Myths & Realities
Surely no member of the vegetable kingdom has ever been more misunderstood than hemp. For too many years, emotion-not reason-has guided our policy toward this crop. And nowhere have emotions run hotter than in the debate over the distinction between industrial hemp and marijuana. This paper is intended to inform that debate by offering scientific evidence, so that farmers, policymakers, manufacturers, and the general public can distinguish between myth and reality.
Botanically, the genus Cannabis is composed of several variants. Although there has been a long-standing debate among taxonomists about how to classify these variants into species, applied plant breeders generally embrace a biochemical method to classify variants along utilitarian lines. Cannabis is the only plant genus that contains the unique class of molecular compounds called cannabinoids. Many cannabinoids have been identified, but two preponderate: THC, which is the psychoactive ingredient of Cannabis, and CBD, which is an antipsychoactive ingredient. One type of Cannabis is high in the psychoactive
I see that yellow journalism is still alive. There will always be someone attempting to demonize the hemp/marijuana plant.
It would be nice to know what John Berry’s of Redlands regional chair of citizens against legalizing marijuana back ground. Is he part of the pharmaceutical industry as Senator Jeff stone? Or is he of the alcohol industry who is losing money to marijuana.
The press enterprise editorial board recently imply that flog report from the Washington University school of medicine St. Louis indicated legalization wouldn’t harm California teams of voters prove that don’t use marijuana in November. Obviously does not agree with that you came up with a variety of different Statistic. With no backing.
Obviously he has ignored President Nixon’s report commissioned, the Schaeffer report. Which claims it should be decriminalized. There’s also the Jamaican report, Canada has one multiple countries have reports that all indicate marijuana should be decriminalized.
It’s hard to change old people’s minds when they made them up.
I find it interesting though that the press enterprise allowed this to be posted in the paper under the opinion section. Yellow journalism is still alive and still demonizing a God-given plant. Mr. Barry and I use that term lightly, Should read; ” The Emperor Wears No Clothes” by Jack Herer or at lease do some research on the topic.
There are many books and records available for your enjoyment.
Like my mom use to tell me” Opinions are like ass holes and everyone has one.” Thank God intelligent people don’t buy into you Crap.
|OK America everyone sit back and relax. Sitdown in your favorite lounge chair. Log on to reality. We must write our political officials and send them a copy of this, the Schaeffer report, the Jamaican report, Canada’s report, there are so many it’s a new rule, Government must spend our tax dollars on things they already know. (Creed) We must wake them up and tell them we are sick and tired of their lies and their deceptions. You’re being controlled by the lobbyist for your own personal greed and were sick of it. They’ve got us hooked on petroleum which is continually rising for the greed. They continually cut down our trees by destroying the Amazon when the same thing can be done with the hemp plant. The alcohol industry has been controlling our country regardless of how horrible it is for our bodies. But it’ still legal. Open up your eyes. Unchainthetree. Com on WordPress.comOh yeah! The American government has known Hemp/cannabis/ marijuana/ Whatever you want to all this God given plant, CURES CANCER.
OH YEAH, HAPPY BIRTHDAY MR. OBAMA.
Animal care.Question: “What does it mean that God gave humanity dominion over the animals?”Answer: The word dominionmeans “rule or power over.” God has sovereign power over His creation and has delegated the authority to mankind to have dominion over the animals (Genesis 1:26). David reinforces this truth: “You made [mankind] rulers over the works of your hands; you put everything under their feet” (Psalm 8:6). Humanity was to “subdue” the earth (Genesis 1:28)—we were to hold a position of command over it; we were placed in a superior role and were to exercise control over the earth and its flora and fauna. Mankind was set up as the ruler of this world. All else was subjugated to him.God’s command to “subdue” the earth and the animal life in it is a command to have the “mastery” over all of it. A true mastery (of anything) cannot be accomplished without an understanding of the thing mastered. In order for a musician to master the violin, he or she must truly understand the instrument. In order for mankind to attain mastery over the animal kingdom, we must understand the animals.With the authority to rule comes the responsibility to rule well. There is an inherent accountability in the command to “subdue” the earth. Man has a duty to exercise his dominion under the authority of the One who delegated it. All authority is of God (Romans 13:1-5), and He delegates it to whomever He will (Daniel 4:17). The word subduedoesn’t have to imply violence or mistreatment. It can mean “to bring under cultivation,” as in “The pioneers subdued the wilderness.”Man is to be the steward of the earth; he is to bring the materials world and all of its varied elements into the service of God and the good of mankind. The command to “subdue” the earth is actually part of God’s blessing on mankind. Created in the image of God, Adam and Eve were to use the earth’s vast resources in the service of both God and themselves. It would only make sense for God to decree this, since only humans were created in God’s image.When God gave humanity dominion over the animals, it was in order to care for, tend to, and use those animals to their fullest potential in a just manner. At the time that God gave mankind dominion over the animals, humans did not eat meat (Genesis 1:29). Eating meat did not begin until after the Flood (Genesis 9:1–3), and it was at that time that animals started to fear humans. However, although God changed the way we interact with animals, in that they are now “meat,” we still bear a responsibility to treat animals humanely. Human “rule” over animals does not mean we have the right to mistreat or misuse those animals.Having dominion over the animals should entail a humane management of them as the resource God has ordained them to be. We should consider that mankind was given the task (and blessing) of representing God in this world. We are the caretakers. We hold sway over all the earth, and we (bearing God’s image) bear a responsibility to act as God would. Does God misuse His creation? No. Is God unwise in His management of resources? No. Is God ever cruel or selfish or wasteful? No. Then neither should we be. Any misuse or mistreatment of God’s creation is the result of sin, not the result of following God’s original command. We must fulfill our duty to manage the earth wisely until that time when the wolf shall lie down with the lamb in the kingdom of Christ (Isaiah 11:6).Read more: http://www.gotquestions.org/dominion-over-animals.html#ixzz3Weh3UMgh.
